Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Robert White, Andrew Bird, and host Will Duggan
Britain's Got Talent runner-up - 2018
Robert White is the only gay, aspergic, quarter-Welsh comic on the British comedy circuit. Known for his brilliant timing and performance style, Robert’s chaotic stage presence, improvisational skills and delivery won him the 2010 Malcolm Hardy Award for Comic Originality - and in the same year he wrote one of Dave’s Top Ten Jokes of The Fringe.
Since he first hit the stand-up scene in 2006, as a finalist in the prestigious Hackney Empire Competition, Robert has gone from strength to strength. He is now a sought after act who regularly performs across the country and internationally, and in Spring 2019 completed his first UK tour.
“Robert White killed with this show, matching an amazing presence to clever jokes and pitch-perfect delivery... Just brilliant” - ★★★★ - Chortle
“Get him on Shooting Stars - Robert White’s show is a jaw-dropping riot... the mix of lewd innuendo, cheesy jokes, music hall songs played on a knackered keyboard and sound-effects games makes for a side-splitting hour.” - ★★★★ - The List
“Delivering a mixture of stand up, songs, props and audience interaction, Robert White tries hard - and spectacularly succeeds... never seems to fail to provoke laughter” - ★★★★ - Three Weeks
Andrew Bird is a top headline act at venues up and down the country, and has performed all around the world.
He has been a tour support for Rhod Gilbert, Rob Brydon and on his recent arena tour Michael McIntyre - including Wembley Area and the O2 Arena. He’s also one of only seven comedians to perform for Banksy at Dismal Land.

Andrew is also a regular guest on BBC Radio’s The Rhod Gilbert Show, and has been the warm-up artist for TV shows including Taskmaster, Nevermind The Buzzcocks, Room 101 and Pointless.
